Wachowskis Team With J. Michael Straczynski For Netflix Series Sense8

JMS-01Another interesting development for original content on Netflix: Deadline reports that the Wachowskis are teaming up with J. Michael Straczynski and his Studios JMS for a 10-episode science fiction series called Sense8.

JMS is quite a busy fellow these days.

The Wachowskis’ new sci-fi drama project Sense8 has landed atNetflix with a 10-episode order for a debut on Netflix Instant in late 2014.

“We’re excited to work with Netflix and Georgeville Television on this project, and we’ve wanted to work with Joe Straczynski for years, chiefly due to the fact his name is harder to pronounce than ours, but also because we share a love of genre and all things nerdy.” They also shed some light on how the series was conceived. “Several years ago, we had a late-night conversation about the ways technology simultaneously unites and divides us, and out of that paradox Sense8 was born.”
